THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Italian Bistro Restaurant Review

: This eatery---one of two Italian Bistro locations in Philly---proffers familiar, tasty dishes and a friendly vibe. Very well located for concerts and theaters, the Bistro's menu is ideal for families and the budget minded. Pastas---such as plain spaghetti al pomodoro or penne Siciliana---are homemade, and old standbys such as eggplant Parmigiana won't disappoint. Start with a mozzarella salad or polenta with mushrooms, just have a pizza or roast chicken, and then check out the changing desserts that are displayed in front. The prix-fixe pre-theater menu is a good deal---four courses for $20---or show your tickets for a 20 percent discount.
